Sweet Potato Greens (part of Thanksgiving Special)

It hardly seems possible, but Thanksgiving is just around the corner! Gather your ohana and friends for an unforgettable feast at Jade Dynasty Seafood Restaurant, for a special celebration of family, friendship, and delicious Chinese cuisine.

Located at Ala Moana’s Hookipa Terrace, Jade Dynasty is an elegant oasis of fine dining, and Thanksgiving offers a prime opportunity for the restaurant’s kitchen wizards to create a splendid menu for your party. You can even choose a take-out meal, so that you can simply enjoy it in your own dining room.

Deep Fried Whole Fish (part of Thanksgiving Special)

The Thanksgiving Special 6-Courses Set will be served Thursday, Nov. 28 to Sunday Dec. 1. (Three days’ advance notice is required for both dine-in and take-out meals.)

At $338 for a table of 10, the fabulous six-course menu begins with Golden Fried Shrimp Balls (deep-fried shrimp mousse with sweet and sour dipping sauce). Next is a Deep-Fried Whole Fish with Sweet & Sour Sauce, quick-fried and topped with sweet and sour sauce.

Just a few items in the 2019 Thanksgiving Special ($338)

The Roasted Turkey, a 12-14 lb. bird, is seasoned with red bean curds and Chinese spices, and served with the Chef’s Special Sauce. Sweet Potato Greens is a wonderfully healthy dish consisting of the sauteed tender tips of sweet potatoes with whole garlic.

Pumpkin Mochi Fried Rice consists of stir-fried mochi rice with Chinese sausage and pumpkin. “You can have a savory taste and sweet taste in one bite,” says general manager Gary Chan. “It’s my personal favorite.”

Last but not least, a dessert worthy of this magnificent meal: Pumpkin Mochi — hand-made deep-fried lotus paste with a pumpkin-flavored wrap.

If you’d like a smaller meal, Jade Dynasty offers a set for takeout only, at $198. It includes a 12to 14-pound Roasted Turkey, Poached Kahuku Shrimps, and Pumpkin Mochi Fried Rice.
